Feng Shui, Meaning "wind" and "water," is the ancient art of living in harmony with the natural world. Though the spaces you live or work in are different, the principles of Feng Shui remain the same. Feng Shui is a traditional art of living with its philosophy firmly rooted in spirituality.

Feng Shui for offices

Money to you may seem material, but it has many spiritual and energetic repercussions that affect all aspects of your life. Money flows in and out of your life like the wind, touching everything as it passes. It is essential to ensure that this wind is a healing and strengthening force, not a destructive power that causes harm. It is equally important to ensure that the wind constantly blows, at least as a breeze and that there is never stagnant, foul air (which symbolizes close finances). Feng Shui for offices provides the guidelines for living harmoniously in your work environment. It also tells you how you can manage office spaces to yield prosperity.

Some time-tested office Feng Shui practices can be used to enhance your workplace. Practicing the following Feng Shui Tips can make office Feng Shui work for you, and you will start noticing the changes.

Feng Shui tips for offices

Remove clutter

Your office must be organized and arranged efficiently. According to Feng Shui, Clutter stimulates negative Chi (energy) and should be kept to a minimum. Remove whatever extraneous materials are lying in your office. Clearing away the physical clutter you have been confronting daily frees up your mental and emotional burden and makes you feel light, cheerful, and optimistic in your reinvigorated working space.

Position of the desk

Keep your desk in the commanding position. The commanding position means a part of power, where you have a direct view of the door, a pleasant idea out the window, and a wall behind you for stability. This position of the desk, according to the Feng Shui office, offers you maximum control.

The shape of your desk

The shape of your desk can affect your mood and productivity in the workplace. Rounded curves are flowing, encouraging the flow of creativity. A kidney-shaped desk follows the natural curves of the human body and is said to give you a subconscious feeling of inner alignment.

Placing the plants

Place plants in your work and help you stay connected to the natural world. Since the green color spurs creativity and new ideas, it allows you to have a creative element in the office. In Feng Shui, keeping plants helps to have positive Chi flow in corners, which otherwise are neglected spaces devoid of energy. Green plants also act as a filtering system, reducing toxins and circulating stagnant air.

Choosing the correct light

The best light is natural daylight, so move your desk close to a window but never have your desk directly in front of a window or fluorescent lights, which cast a glare, causing eyestrain and exhaustion. You may improve your mood and energy dramatically by replacing fluorescent lights with warm lights that don’t throw a glow.

Use of Feng Shui colors

Using Feng Shui Colors can help you achieve balance in your office. Different colors have different properties. Some colors can help people feel grounded and secure. Blues, purples, or reds are supposed to enhance the wealth and prosperity area of your office.

Office Feng Shui and Bagua

A Bagua map can help make your office a "Feng Shui-friendly" environment. Bagua can help you place objects or furniture in your office in areas that in Feng Shui are said to stimulate your discipline, prosperity, and creativity. Once you determine the connections between various spaces in your office and eight different guys of the Bagua map, you start to develop a much stronger sense of purpose and focus on the changes you would like to implement in your life. You can use Feng Shui Elements to create a balance between yin and yang energies.

According to Feng Shui, for offices you can have:
* Your desk and computer in the "career" area
* Reference books in the "knowledge" and "self-cultivation" areas
* A crystal bowl in "wealth and prosperity."
* You can have reception, phone systems/communication systems in the area marked for helpful people.
* You can have a picture of your father or other relatives in the family area if you have an inherited business.

Feng Shui and home office

The tips mentioned above can also be applied to your home office. But if not possible, you can at least take care to change your home office to a Feng Shui office.

For example, if your home office is full of creative and dream-inducing objects, eliminate some of them and introduce more logical, work-oriented elements to help you get to business.

Or, if your home office is like the other rooms of your office, it has beige or white curtains that can be dramatically improved,and the energy invigorated, by using the guidelines of Feng Shui for offices. Something as simple as adding a tall red vase on the floor or atop a table or windowsill can help you have more yin energy. Impersonal office space can become suddenly personalized and imbued with character when you hang a print of your favorite painting on the wall. A stale room will be immediately freshened when you light a scented candle in an aroma you find particularly pleasing.

Adding a sturdy brown desk to the home office where bills are paid promotes practicality in a person who used to be a spendthrift. These are just an introduction to some of the Feng Shui practices. You can have several Feng Shui design ideas for your office or home office to increase balance and harmony.
